    Hello there! I am a software engineer with 4 years of experience in ML, computer vision, and deep generative models. Most recently, I worked on a RAG-based chatbot to help simplify the immigration law jargon. Before that, I worked with generative models to enable the creation of 3D animations of characters following user-defined paths while performing specific tasks like walking or running.

    I am looking for a computer vision or machine learning engineering role. I'm open to work in either the UK or the US. If you're interested in my experience, just drop me a message :)
